500th Post Giveaway!!!!

I can't believe Far More Than Rubies has been in existence for 500 posts!

{As of right now, I suppose!}

I can't say that I've been blogging for 500 posts, because truth be told I "blogged," using Xanga before that. But really those were just notes of an update for my few friends who read it! Now, it's become something totally different!

I've loved blogging (and will continue to blog for a long long time!) and am so lucky to have the chance to form community with all of you!

I've shared many of my goals throughout the past 2 years on here, but one of my blogging goals was to have one hundred readers by the end of this summer. SO, in order to encourage positive growth....

And, in honor of all that is holy in blog world, I would like to invite you to enter into my 500th post giveaway! The prizes are a few of my favorite things (valued at over 70 dollars!):

An Oh So Cute Owl Mag Bag, by Papersource (from Borders)

A metal Bookmark, essential for holding your place on a windy day at the beach! (from Dayspring.)

The Scarlet Pimpernel OR The Count of Monte Cristo, your choice! (from Borders.)

A notecard set, perfect for jotting a note of encouragement to someone special. (from Dayspring.)

Tahiti, Sweetie, the perfect after sun lotion, that has magical powers! Plus 2 of your choice products from Bath and Body Works!

To be eligible to enter, you MUST be a follower and you will get ONE entry if you post about this giveaway on your blog and link back to Far More Than Rubies! Please leave a comment saying you have posted!

The giveaway ends on Sunday, May 23rd, at 8pm EST. Winner will be announced Monday, May 24th at 8 am EST.

All prizes have been bought by me and I am not being paid to promote these items or companies!
